Consultation

Transform your home, Transform your life!

Your home is a reflection of you – and yet many of us don’t give our spaces the attention and care they need to truly reflect who we are and who we wish to become. In our busy lives, it’s all too easy to ignore our stuff. But all that stuff affects the way we feel every time we step into our home. Your belongings – and the care and attention you give them – impact your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being.

We offer in person consultations in Los Angeles County, California; Blaine County, Idaho; and Ada County, Idaho. If you live outside of these ares, you can arrange a phone or video call. If you would like to learn more, please contact us to arrange a free 20 minute discovery call.

Consultations are comprised of 5 phases:

Step 1 – Clarify: You will be asked to fill out a brief pre-consultation questionnaire. The purpose of the questionnaire is to begin clarifying your goals, setting intentions, and envisioning your ideal home and life.

Step 2 – The Initial Consultation: (3 Hours) During the first consultation you will show us your home, so we can further discuss your needs and goals. We will then create a Clutter Clearing Plan. Clearing Clutter is the foundation for creating a home and life you love. Together, we will create a checklist of each room in your home and each area within each room that needs to be decluttered. The Clutter Clearing plan will ensure you stay on track and commit to addressing each and every object in your home. Finally, we will choose an area to begin clearing using our 4 step process.

Virtual Coaching: Please contact us for a free 20 minute discovery call. You can book a series of consultations to guide you through a total home and life transformation, or you can book calls by the ½ hour to get coaching on all of your clutter clearing, organization, and life design.

Step 3 – Schedule Time to Clear: Once you have learned the 4 step process, you may choose to continue clearing on your own (we are available for questions via text or email) or we can assist you throughout the entire process. It is recommended that you schedule at least one additional 3 hour clutter clearing session.

Step 4 – Inner Clutter Clearing and Life Design: We will teach you a process for clearing your inner clutter (all of the thoughts that are running through our heads distracting us from being present in the moment). Deepening and expanding on your initial intentions we will also show you how to create a Life Design. Organizing our thoughts and setting intentions on paper frees up psychic space and can be very effective in manifesting a life we love. This consultation usually takes 1 hour and can be done in person or by video conference call.

Step 5 – Organization, Placement and Anchoring your Dreams: Once the decluttering is complete we will help you find a place for the items you choose to keep. We will also discuss room usage and furniture placement. Utilizing your Life Design, we will show you how to bring your dreams into your home by reflecting your dreams in your home (creating visual affirmations) and/ or creating space for your dreams.

FAQs:

How much does it cost?

We charge $150 per hour for in person consultations (travel fees in Los Angeles may apply) and $125 per hour for phone or video coaching. The initial consultation is 3 hours. Any follow-up consultations can be booked hourly.

Can you get results starting small and going room by room?

Yes! We have found that clearing even one drawer or removing one object from your home that is not loved or useful can have a ripple effect that transforms an area of your life. The benefit of going room by room and starting small is that you can achieve results by setting aside small periods of time for clutter clearing. That said, it is the whole house experience that will allow you to reach a new level of simplicity in your life. The clutter plan allows you to clear room by room one small area at a time and stay on track to addressing each and every item in your home.

Will you dispose of the things I choose to let go of?

We will teach you a process of letting go with gratitude and intention. We do not remove things from your home, but we will help you locate places to dispose, donate, or consign items.

Do I need to be present during the clearing?

Yes. Clutter is anything that is not loved or useful and only you will know what is loved and useful for you. We will be teaching you how to clear clutter and determine what is loved and useful.

Is there anything I need to purchase?

Please have the following on hand for clutter clearing. Most likely, you will already have these items in your home:

  • Trash bag
  • Recycle bag or bin
  • Cardboard boxes/ grocery bags/ shopping bags for items to be donated, sold or repaired
  • Bins or baskets to place “projects” that invariably surface as you clear i.e. organizing must follow clearing, so if you come across photos you will choose which ones you are keeping and which ones you are letting go of; but putting them into an album is considered a project and will happen later in the organizing phase. The photos you choose to keep can be placed in a container until that time.

Will you purchase storage items for me?

In the organizing phase, some clients may choose to purchase storage containers (we do not offer this service). Storage items may be beneficial, particularly if you are short on space, but most often you will find that a clutter-free space requires little organization and you can often use containers you already have in your home.

Will we clutter clear my family’s, partner’s or roommate’s belongings?

It is not possible to do someone else’s clearing. With the exception of young children, we advise finishing your own belongings before working on other’s belongings.

Testimonials:

A couple of years ago I had a consultation with Alison. I’m convinced that the session changed my life and my surroundings. From the I learned about changing the energy in my living space to promote health and prosperity in all areas of my life and how to clear and rid myself of clutter. Prior to the I had been through a series of dysfunctional relationships, and the prospects at finding my true love were rather bleak. Soon after the consultation, I met the most wonderful man on earth and after a short we are now engaged. My love life is not the only area that improved, I’ve also made career and life changes as well. I can’t thank Alison enough for her contribution all the positive changes in my life, I’ll be forever grateful.” – Lina, Client

I thank Laura for helping me connect with my home and showing me that, for all its importance in my life, that its impact on my being is more powerful than I had ever imagined. The challenges in my life can be addressed from the place I call home and I feel moved to create love and peace within it.” – Lori, Interior Designer Client

Having a consultation with Alison was an incredibly positive and experience. At the time, my husband’s job was not going well and he desperately needed to make a change. It was incredible how her intuitive sense of what we needed to do made such an immediate difference in both environments. She worked with what we already had in our home and everything she said made perfect sense. And after making the changes, it seemed like at least one positive thing would happen every day – a phone call, an unexpected gift, a piece of good news – all of it leading us in the right direction. By helping us to set intentions and be mindful of our goals, Alison literally changed our lives and propelled us in a positive direction. Looking back, life felt quite stagnant. We felt stuck. And as soon as Alison guided us with her patience, intuition and expertise, change was immediately set in motion. Including, the most incredible new job for my husband, that continues to be the most positive, fulfilling and financially rewarding experience of his career thus far.” – Stephanie, Client

Since our things with my husband and me have been great, great, great! And I do believe that ever since we put the fountain Laura recommended on the front porch things have gone well for us. Personally, our relationship is fabulous and professionally things are good and just all around, things are joyful and peaceful. I can’t thank Laura enough for her advice!” – Cheryl, Client

Laura is so gifted at what she does. I feel blessed by her words of guidance, advice support.” – Marin, Client
